Grandone chicken
Located near Don Mills and York Mills in a small strip plaza food court.

Just ate it yesterday. Cost for my meal was just over $20 tax included for 12 HUGE pieces of thigh and drums, 3 sides and 2L drink. You won't complain about the size of their chicken.

Their sandwiches also seen to be getting praise.

I don't care for self promotion as long as the price is good at the end of the day.

From initial analysis, this looking like a banger. $5.50 for a sandwich combo.

Interested to know what the RFDgods think as I know they have the pickiest taste.

Good Morning
The Korean vendor, Yummy BBQ, in this food court is pretty good, run by an older Korean couple. Woofles and Cream is also in there too. I'll check it out their fried chicken!

Thanks for being my character witness LOL.

Funny how some ppl might think a person who's been on this forum for 16 yrs and has as many posts and upvotes as me can be thought of as a shill.

I stand by what I wrote...pieces were huge [too big in fact] and value is fantastic. $20 tax in for 12 pces and 4 sides (I subbed the drink for another side) is crazy cheap. Value - this beats out my usual regular Popeye's Tues/Thur special deal. Taste - I prefer Popeyes as they brine their chicken so more flavor in the meat.

BTW the "Spicy" chicken is a sprinkled on spice a la Jollibee style (if you've tried that) - not as spicy as Jollibee though. I'd describe it more like a BBQ chip seasoning like taste.

Picture for sizing - side by side vs standard deli container lid. You can see the spicy sprinkle.

I've tried majority of their items already so here is my take in comparison to Popeyes.

Fried Chicken: really good...either on par or slightly better than Popeyes (Winner: Tied)
Chicken Tenders: A bit dry and a bit overpriced...Popeyes is better (Winner: Popeyes)
Chicken Nuggets: honestly they taste like supermarket nuggets (Winner: Popeyes)
Chicken Sandwich: too much bread for the size of the chicken meat and the meat was only alright (Winner: Popeyes)
Shrimp Sandwich: Surprisingly good...don't think Popeyes has anything like this so no comparison (Winner: Grandone)
Fries: a bit bland and unsalted (Winner: Popeyes)
Mashed Potatoes: buddy had this and said it tasted like Costco mashed potatoes (Winner: Popeyes)

Total,
Popeyes: 6
Grandone: 2

Value: Grandone only because of the 50% discount

Taste: Popeyes for the overall win

Readiness of food: Granted Grandone is smaller, they still needed a bit of time to prep the food so Popeyes takes the win here

Would I go back? Only if i'm going for the delicious ice cream from Woofles and Cream and they still have their 50% off discount..otherwise Popeyes

I was checking out the Yummy BBQ place when I was there. Prices were not fantastic per se but if food is good, maybe I'll give it a try as well. The "lunch combo" pricing was decent.

There was also a Thai One On and Woofles and Cream in the food court...looked good and worth a try.

And a Shawarma and Indian place...didn't look good and likely not worth a try.

BTW Galleria is very close by...great Korean grocery store. If you've never been to one, this is THE BEST ONE to go to IMO. They have a good prepared Korean food selection as well.

Phone in your order because I think they fry to order so it's gonna be a little wait!

For sides, get the onion rings and sweet potato fries (which are usually more $).

Agreed here that phoning in your order ahead of time will save you time. I did that for the 2nd and 3rd time i went =D

But I would assume most people who discover the place aren't going to realize that on their first visit and have to wait between 10+ min depending on order size.

do you just go in and order, or do they require you to order over the phone or internet

Edit: And do they take CC in person for this offer.

Recommend phone/internet your order for a time. Otherwise they fry to order.

It's because RFD on mobile doesn't show post numbers just a name.

I looked at some of their photos on google. There's a "patty" that appears to have little kernels of corn and carrot. Is this the shrimp patty?

It's like a "patty" comprised of a mash of shrimp paste, small shrimp pieces, some corn, and probably carrot (can't recall exactly).
